I have thoroughly enjoyed Lynn Blackburn‘s series Dive Team Investigations! Getting to know the team from the first book through the third has been a lot of fun! One Final Breath is the final book in this series and it was just as enjoyable as the other two!! The best part though, and the sweetest was the interweaving of Lynette Eason’s characters from her Blue Justice Series! Seeing Brady St. John make a cameo in this book was a fun surprise!
Lynn’s third book keeps us in the water as the dive team is investigating a recent shooting on the lake. The main characters in One Final Breath are Gabe Chavez and Anissa Bell. Both are on the dive team and work together but up until now their relationship has been very strained and difficult.
Ms. Blackburns books are always fast paced with many twists and turns. I always enjoy connecting with her characters and watching how they work through their personal issues while dealing with pressure from work and sometimes with their friends.
This book was a great read and a wonderful conclusion to the series. I highly recommend all of her books : Beneath the Surface, In Too Deep and One Final Breath. They have a great spiritual element in each, as we watch the characters walk out their faith and encourage each other.
NOTE : I received a copy of One Final Breath in exchange for an honest review.
More about the book:
When investigator Gabriel Chavez had his cover blown by an aggressive reporter, the silver lining was being able to rejoin the dive team. The downside? Dive team captain Anissa Bell–a woman who both fascinates and frustrates him.
Anissa grew up as a missionary kid on the Micronesian island of Yap and always planned to return after college. But she remained stateside, determined to solve the case that haunts her–the murder of her best friend and the disappearance of a three-year-old child.
When Anissa’s fractured past collides with Gabe’s investigation into the tragic shooting death of a teenage boy in Lake Porter, they’ll have to put their complicated history with each other aside in order to uncover the identity of a killer. What they’ll discover is that revenge has no statute of limitations.
Award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn closes out her nail-biting Dive Team Investigations series with a story that will have you wondering how long you can hold your breath.
